Those axe wraiths are killer!

Ive been tempted to jump back into Eldar after being a heavy 2E player & painter, and this unit is one of the reasons. Seeing them painted this well is even more inspiring

There is no doubt that that axes are brutal and the d3 damage is very nice, on too many occasions I roll a 1 or 2 on them for 1 damage on other Dd3 weapons. For me the variable wound output at a negative to hit isn't worth the extra 50pts (off the top of my head so may be wrong) for a unit of 5. Having said that I haven't used wraithblades and experience on the tabletop trumps theorising using the data sheets

I think those Wraith models overall are the reason I got back into Eldar. (The last time I played Eldar the Wraiths were metal. lol) Thanks for the compliment.

I think you might be missing the point reduction from a Chapter Approved in there.

 

I would argue the game has become so fantastically destructive since Psychic Awakening started that it's incredibly hard to get into close combat with Wraiths now. I was using a Serpent, but wow your model count starts to shrink fast. On foot, or on a transport, I find the Shields + Protect are vital.

 

Missing with the axes is silly. And yea the D3 would be so much better as Damage 2, but I believe this is why they put the costs down. That being said new craftworld abilities, and new abilities to increase number of attacks does help level out those issues.
